MEET YOUR PUBLIC DEFENDER
San Francisco—Members of the Bay View/Hunter’s Point community are invited to get to know Public Defender Jeff Adachi and his staff on Saturday at our “Meet Your Public Defender” event.
“This is a chance for us to meet people from the community and answer any questions they might have about the work we do,” said Adachi. “It’s important for them to know that we are there to serve them, not to serve the courts or the police.”
The event kicks off at 11 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m., with plenty of BBQ, “Know Your Rights” skits, a DJ, a raffle, kids’ activities, and more.
“It’s always a lot of fun,” said Deputy Public Defender Tenette Smith. “It’s an informal setting where people can get to know us outside of a courtroom.”
WHEN: Saturday, September 29, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: Joseph Lee Rec Center, 1520-1598 Oakdale Avenue
HOSTED BY: The SF Office of the Public Defender and the Racial Justice Committee
This event is free.
